National Consumer Vote

America’s Largest Consumer Vote™

American Choice Awards personnel work with category experts, influential journalists and screened Primary Shoppers to identify areas of keen consumer interest and growth. Approved categories are Food and Beverage, Beauty, Household Care, Health and Personal Care, Home and Garden, Kids, Pets and Tech. Categories are populated with corresponding brands, and a universe of consumer responses is set to achieve the requisite levels of survey accuracy. Screened consumers rate each brand in key criteria such as Quality, Value, Performance, Appeal, Design, Materials, Reputation, Innovation, Safety, Sustainability and Recommendation Likelihood. Brands receiving the highest scores in each criterion are eligible for the National Best Brand Award designation.

Methodology / NORC

Consumer research is conducted using the M-CAP (Multimedia Consumer Aggregation Platform) and a proprietary balloting system developed with experts at The National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at The University of Chicago. The AmeriSpeak OMNIBUS platform is recognized as the most scientifically rigorous review of consumer sentiment in the US.
